delete specific sub directories recurcively Can't Post


I have written a perl script to checkout from CVS. I want to recurcively delete all the 'CVS' directories from every folder. How can I do that. Thanks in advance.

Use the File::Find (or File::Find::Rule) module to traverse the directory tree deleting the directories as needed. You'll want to set no_chdir to true so that you can delete the current dir if needed.

You'll also want to use the File::Path module to handle the deletion process.
